This project will really make you throw your traditional design rulebook out the window and embrace The New Southern's simple and unfussy aesthetic. And... a kid-friendly, all-white home? There's no way. Yet, my Nashville gal pal Chelsea Robinson made it happen. Situated in the heart of gorgeous Alys Beach on Highway 30A, this home was just waiting for a little TLC. Chelsea incorporated bright whites and natural elements seen throughout the architecture of Alys and created a serene, comfortable hideaway for her client's family. Notice the plaster walls, layered with lacquer to hide those little imperfections beneath. Grasscloth rugs are tossed down throughout, and there's plenty of sitting and sleeping spaces for little ones and visitors, alike. It's always a treat to spend time on the Emerald Shore, and shooting beautiful homes like this one make it all the better. Thank you, MyDomaine, for sharing this space!!
I am excited to finally share this beach home shoot, featured in this month's Traditional Home! It came at the perfect time with Summer on my mind!! It's always such an honor when I travel and venture into the news stand to find my hardwork on the COVER of one of my favorite shelter magazines!! It truly feels like the work comes full circle and is out there in the world to add a little beauty and inspiration....... or to get all of our wheels turning for our next vacation destination!! The vacation home (which happens to be Luke Bryan's!!!) is in Florida, and was designed by Nashville-based designer Chad James. As a Nashville-based entrepreneur, I'm so fortunate to work with such amazing, creative, and talented go-getters—especially the occasional country music star!!!
